He's alive

The gates and doors were barred
The windows fastened down
Spent the night in sleeplessness
And rose at ev'ry sound
Half in hopeless sorrow
Half in fear of the day
To find the soldiers breaking thru
To drag us all away

Just before the sunrise
I heard something at the wall
The gates began to rattle
A voice began to call
I hurried to the window
To look down to the street
Expecting swords and torches
And the sound of soldiers' feet.

No one there but Mary
And so I went down to let her in
John stood there beside me
As she told us where she'd been
She said they've moved Him in the night
And none of us knows where
The stone's been rolled away
And His body isn't there

We both ran toward the garden
And then John ran ahead
We found the stone and the empty tomb
Just the way that Mary'd said
But the winding sheet they wrapped Him in was just an empty shell
And how and why they'd taken Him
Was more than I could tell

Something strange had happened there
Just what I didn't know
John believed in a miracle
I just turned to go
Circumstance and speculation couldn't lift me very high
'Cause I had seen Him crucified
Then I watched Him die

Back inside the house again
The guilt and anguish came
Everything I'd promised Him
Just added to my shame
When at last it came a choice
I denied I knew His name
But even if He was alive
It wouldn't be the same

Suddenly the air was filled with a strange and sweet perfume
Light that came from ev'rywhere took shadows from the room
Jesus stood before me with His arms open wide
And I fell down upon my knees and just clung to Him and cried

He raised me to my feet as I looked into His eyes
Love was shining out from Him like sunlight from the skies (sunlight from the skies)
Guilt and my confusion disappeared in sweet release (sweet release)
Every fear that I'd ever had just melted into peace

He's alive! (He's alive!)
He's alive! (He's alive!)
He's alive and I'm forgiven
Heaven's gates are open wide

Repeat Chorus (x4 with variations and fade out)
